Fischer arrested on two felony charges

Wednesday, March 15, 2006

A March 10 tip to the Clay County Sheriff's Department led to the investigation and arrest of a rural Clay County man on Class C Felony charges of child exploitation and possession of child pornography.

Sheriff Mike Heaton said certain details will be withheld at this time to protect the unidentified juveniles involved in the case.

Brian F. Fischer, 31, was arrested Sunday night by deputies Jerry Siddons and Josh Clarke after a cell phone allegedly containing multiple nude pictures of at least one juvenile in suggestive poses was found in Fischer's possession during a search.

Fischer bonded out of jail Monday afternoon paying 10 percent of the $10,000 bond.

He is scheduled to appear in Clay Superior Court on April 10. If convicted, Fischer faces up to 11 years imprisonment, a maximum of $20,000 in fines and being listed on the Indiana Sexual Offender's registry for life due to the age of the juveniles involved. The Clay County Sheriff's Department and Prosecutor's Office are involved in the ongoing investigation.
